The best way to experience a new fragrance is to most definitely taste it? The French brand Le Couvent Des Minimes, a natural skincare company, celebrated its latest rose-infused fragrance with a macaron baking party!
We were given a crash course lesson on how to make the French delicate macarons, inspired by all the scents of the brand’s natural botanical fragrances. Mille-feuille Bakery Cafe in NYC allowed us to roll up our sleeves and get to work, discovering how the scents and flavors of rose, orange, vanilla and citrus are carefully selected, much like the botanist monks who inspired Le Couvent Des Minimes’ skincare recipes.
Le Couvent Des Minimes botanical fragrance recipes were inspired by a convent from a small village in the South of France. The rich, plant-based range of natural fragrances were influenced by the monks’ tradition of formulating their recipes with botanicals, offering natural skincare solutions for Le Couvent des Minimes to create their own special care recipes.
The NEW! Botanical Cologne of the Cloister opens with sparkling fresh notes of grapefruit (for a refreshing scent) and ginger (a source of vitality) that flirt with black current and ivy. At the heart of the scent is rose and pink peppercorn (sources of joy) magnified by magnolia and peony. A delicate musk assures that this scent holds true to its natural authenticity. There’s also 3 other fragrances to fall in love with:
Eau des Minimes Botanical Fragrance — Sparkling citrus notes of lemon, blood orange and grapefruit add a revitalizing scent with 7 selected plants for beneficial properties as well.
Eau des Missions Botanical Fragrance — A warm and comforting aroma comes from vanilla and its precious bean. Warm notes of benzoin and Virginia cedar blend together to soothe and calm the senses.
Eau Aimable Botanical Fragrance — A fruity, floral blend of sweet orange blossom and citrus fruits evoke sweet memories. Juicy scents of summer fruits immediately come to mind.
We made these! (kind of!)
I also learned that as these scents are categorized as colognes, you can never “over do it.” The natural ingredients ensure that the fragrance will not overwhelm anyone’s sense of smell (or taste for that matter when we got to actually make a rose-flavored macaron).
The light, floral scents are soothing, and can be splashed directly on the skin, spritzed and enjoyed multiple times a day. You can even use these scents to decorate your house with natural, non-synthetic aromas that will have you thinking of the inviting French village these recipes originated from.
